What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lone Tree

The City of Lone Tree is part of the Denver Metropolitan Area. Lone Tree has a sizable senior population, with over 10 percent of the city's 13,500 people aged 65 or over. There is one assisted living facility catering to seniors in the city and 65 more in nearby communities.

Facilities that are certified for Medicaid reimbursements are referred to as Alternative Care Facilities (ACFs). All assisted living facilities in Colorado are licensed and monitored by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lone Tree

 

  • The Lone Tree area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Sky Ridge Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
     
  • Winters in Lone Tree can be harsh. The city receives 69 inches of snow each year, over 40 inches more than the national average. This can keep seniors inside during the winter months. However, summers are sunny, with an average July high of 87. The city has 244 sunny days each year, almost 40 more than the national average, giving seniors plenty of opportunities to enjoy the sunshine during the rest of the year.
     
  • Lone Tree has a very high crime rate, and 98 percent of Colorado's towns and cities are safer than the city. Although violent crime is lower than the state average, property crime occurs at a rate of 72.87 per 1,000 residents, almost three times the Colorado average of 27.41. Seniors moving to the area may wish to investigate ways to secure their belongings.
     
  • The overall cost of living in Lone Tree is 177 on the Sperling index, 77 points higher than the national average. This is largely due to the high cost of housing, and seniors can still save money on daily essentials like groceries and health care, which are less expensive than the U.S. average.
     
  • Retirement income from pensions, Social Security and retirement funds are all subject to income tax in Colorado; however, seniors are eligible for deductions that can significantly reduce their tax bill. Additionally, although sales taxes are high, groceries and medication are both tax-exempt.
     
  • Public transport in Lone Tree is provided by RTD Denver, and seniors are eligible for discounted fares. Lone Tree Link also provides a free shuttle service and an on-demand door-to-door service in the area.
